Well, I didn't exactly bet the house, but I've got $10 for the divison, which will get me $45, and $1 on the AL, which will get me $17. Woo hoo!

Where did you get those odds? Those are pretty high. I can tell you that in Vegas right now at Harrahs, they have the sox as 5-1. Amazingly they also have the Cubs at 3-1 and the Nationals at 25-1. Just strange.

Yep. (Do you think it's this Arizona heat, SoxxoS?)

Feb 2005. 30-1. So $100 to win $3,000. Almost everybody I know thought I was nuts. Now they're not so sure! Happy, Happy, Happy!

The bet was made on Nov. 9th.

Mary...would love to see you cash in for a cool 3 G's....Us Arizonians are just better gamblers, apparently. :D:

Before the season, I had a friend who was going to Vegas put $20 on the Sox to win the WS at 20-1 odds. Still a long way to go though but at least it looks like they'll be in the playoffs!

My boss went to Vegas on Friday so I gave him $50 to put on the Sox to win the series. My uncle was telling me the sox are 25-1 odds.

In January, I put $100 on the sox at 60-1 odds to win the series.

I also put $10 down at 25-1 odds that we win the A.L. pennant.

I have to check the ticket, bu back in February I had a friend put $30 on the Sox to win the AL Pennant. I think the odds were 23 to 1.

You have to undestand the nature of the sports betting. The odds are meant to entice betting, for instance if no one bets on the Sox they will get higher odds so more people bet on them. The fact that the cubs are 3-1 just proves how dumb cubs fans are. That has to be one of the worst bets I have ever seen!

Nationals at 25-1 is not bad bet.

50-1 for the sox! There is no way, please tell me which site so I can put down 50 bucks. Now that's a good bet!

Check the date on that bet, C83. You aren't gonna get the same odds today as you would have last November.

Another thing to consider is where and when you make your bet--and if you are sure you can collect. When I placed my Sox bet back in Feb., I heard some talk about the bigass odds I could get offshore. But I was just fine, thank-you-very-much, with my humble yet lovable 30-1, placed at a legitimate betting parlor in Nevada. At least I know where to find them!

Believe it or not, I have "friends" here telling me I should try to sell my ticket for a quick couple of hundred bucks. Of course, they're the same ones who told me I was crazy to make the bet in the first place!

I feel like strangling my girlfriend! She went to Vegas in February when odds were probably 40-1 for winning the Series but she forgot to place a bet.:angry:

Needless to say, she went back in late May and I placed $30 at 6-1 odds. $1200 winnings look a whole lot better than $180.:angry:

I don't know if this will make you feel any better, but when I made my bet in mid-Feb., the best odds to be found in Reno were 30-1. Of course, no matter what odds you get, someone will always tell you that they should have been a lot higher! I keep hearing that from a friend of mine who's a Tribe fan. Sour grapes?

And I still can't believe anyone is betting on the Cubs at 3-1. Yikes!

There's a reason why Vegas loves Cub fans. Easy money!:cool:

I had a friend go to Vegas around the beginning of April and she put 10 bucks down on 7 to 1 odds. Not bad.
